Attention Thinkers: Did you know that people all over the world are using a revolutionary brain training technology breakthrough to spark phenomenal intelligence, creativity, happiness and genius-level activity in their own brains? Science has proven that the human brain is the most complex and powerful computing machine we have ever seen.  But are we really using all that computing power? That began to change in 2003, when I discovered a short-cut to rapidly unlock the brain’s amazing potential without having to meditate all day long. Wouldn't it be amazing if you absolutely knew that you could learn anything easily and quickly?
That is called Super Learning, and it’s really just the start of the fantastic brain improvements you can experience with Genius Brain Power.
While that approach does eventually work, wouldn’t you rather skip all of that suffering and get straight to the rewards? Brainwave Entrainment guides the brain into a specific frequency using computer generated rhythmic pulses of sound. By guiding the brain into deeper (slower) frequency brainwave patterns, you can induce a profoundly deep state of relaxation and meditation with almost no effort. The highly advanced entrainment technology used in the Genius Brain Power system is far more effective than offerings in much higher priced products, mainly because other companies use a very old type of Brainwave Entrainment that was discovered 150 years ago, called binaural beats. That’s why I use a far superior, much more modern brainwave entrainment technology in Genius Brain Power. The main thing you should remember here is that rhythm is one of the most basic functions in the human brain, so everyone's brain responds to rhythm, including yours. It’s a good thing I started young, because it took me a lifetime of meditation, Yoga, spiritual studies, focused personal evolution and learning technological skills to be able to create the incredibly transformational Genius Brain Power MP3 audio recordings for you.
I went on to study other mental, emotional and spiritual disciplines, eventually honing my abilities to a point where I was able to help others raise their own consciousness. I knew Brainwave Entrainment had amazing potential, but instead of following someone else’s pre-determined, over-priced program, I decided to keep doing research to find a better brainwave entrainment option for my clients. Through intensive testing of pulsed tones for brainwave entrainment, I knew I had finally found the solution! Because the brain doesn’t adapt to these rhythmic tones and ignore them like it does with binaural beats. In fact, all of my research, testing and feedback from customers has shown that the brain responds better to the rhythmic brainwave entrainment pulses in Genius Brain Power the more often they are used! With these brainwave entrainment meditations I have enjoyed wonderful, restorative sleep at night.
I have now moved into a whole new way of calmly loving life and it seems as if I have found endlessly more time. I felt compelled to write and tell you that your entrainment audios were such an awesome addition to my library. The selected background music is perfect, and I have found that the daily IQ is the perfect touch to my morning routine. When each of the tracks finish, I am vividly aware of the existence my brain and its place in the Universe at that moment.
I have been experiencing consistently amazing thoughts and feelings since using the entrainment tracks. At night I usually listen to the deep delta selection and it calms my thoughts and prepares me for sleep. As you read this section carefully, you are going to love the huge amount of incredibly valuable content that you will receive with your purchase of Genius Brain Power.

By regularly entraining your brain in the Delta frequency while you remain awake, you will begin to experience a profound transformation of your mind as it begins to expand to embrace the full depths of your subconscious mind.
One thing is for sure, you will love experiencing for yourself how powerful these deep levels of entrainment feel.
These tracks are intense, and I explain how to use them in the comprehensive user’s manual so you can get the most value out of them possible. If your energy levels can't be raised with entrainment, you may have other health concerns, such as chronic dehydration or adrenal exhaustion to address. You can use these tracks with your eyes open while you work, so you can be incredibly productive while entraining your brain for maximum power. These two 30 min tracks can be used with or without headphones, while you do any activity that will benefit from your operating from a state of relaxed, laser focus. These tracks are great to play in the background while doing a brainstorming session with a group of people.
With these two short 15 minute tracks, you can slip away anywhere private and melt away stress in just a few minutes, so you can return to your day refreshed and invigorated. These tracks will move your brain into a predominantly Alpha brainwave state for a few minutes, helping you to let go of the stresses of your day, so you can see your world through the lens of deep, inner calm.
At the end of the 15 minute session, you will be gently brought back up to a Beta brain frequency, which corresponds to normal but relaxed waking activity, so you can calmly take care of whatever tasks you need to complete.
We're not making any medical claims, but this track has been very helpful for a lot of people experiencing depression who don't want to go on medication.
Anecdotal experiences show that most people begin to notice relief from depression in just a few days of regular usage of these tracks. These unique tracks help you to release stress and also adapt to your current stress levels so that you can handle your day to day workload with greater calm and enjoyment.
It means you can lower your stress levels while at the same time increasing your capacity to handle the stressors in your daily life, so you can more easily deal with all of the things you need to take care of every day. These tracks are designed to give you maximum benefit with headphones while you are in a quiet place with your eyes closed. The result is that your brainwaves will signal your body to perform at maximal capacity, so you can have incredible workouts every single time you exercise. This track will boost your workouts to a whole new level, so you can look forward to exercising and building the body that you truly want to see in the mirror. This results in relaxation and healing of the limbic system and central nervous system, so that you can recover from the stresses of modern life naturally and easily.
Regular use of this track can help prevent you from experiencing fear responses to external stress triggers, so you can be more calm and peaceful on a daily basis. Each track uses slightly different methods of bringing you into a state of deep sleep, so you can use the one that works best for you.
These tracks allow you to make a playlist on your MP3 player that begins with your favorite audio tranquilizer track, followed by 1-2 hours of relaxing ambient rainfall. Genius Brain Power is here to transcend that paradigm of over-priced, mildly effective entrainment products by offering you far more effectiveness and TEN TIMES as much content for a fraction of the price others charge.

MEMORY: BRAIN: 51 Powerful Ways to Improve Brain Power, Enhance Memory, Intelligence and Concentration NATURALLY! This book predicts the decline of today’s professions and describes the people and systems that will replace them. Based on the authors’ in-depth research of more than ten professions, and illustrated by numerous examples from each, this is the first book to assess and question the relevance of the professions in the 21st century. One of America’s most accomplished entrepreneurs—a pioneer who made the Internet part of everyday life and orchestrated the largest merger in the history of business—shares a roadmap for how anyone can succeed in a world of rapidly changing technology. In The Third Wave, which pays homage to the work of the futurist Alvin Toffler (from whom Case has borrowed the title, and whose work inspired him as a young man), Case takes us behind the scenes of some of the most consequential and riveting business decisions of our time while offering illuminating insights from decades of working as an entrepreneur, an investor, a philanthropist, and an advocate for sensible bipartisan policies. Blackout Wars is about the historically unprecedented threat to our electronic civilization from its dependence on the electric power grid. The rise of artificial intelligence has rekindled a long-standing debate regarding the impact of technology on employment. Drawing from nearly 600 years of technology history, Innovation and Its Enemies identifies the tension between the need for innovation and the pressure to maintain continuity, social order, and stability as one of today’s biggest policy challenges.
A “rock star” (New York Times) of the computing world provides a radical new work on the meaning of human consciousness. While the program was a only a partial success, it laid the foundation for The Tides of Mind, a groundbreaking new exploration of the human psyche that shows us how the very purpose of the mind changes throughout the day. In the great introspective tradition of Wilhelm Wundt and Rene Descartes, David Gelernter promises to not only revolutionize our understanding of what it means to be human but also to help answer many of our most fundamental questions about the origins of creativity, thought, and consciousness. With fifty-five peer reviewed chapters written by the leading authors in the field, The Blackwell Companion to Consciousness is the most extensive and comprehensive survey of the study of consciousness available today. Model Zero is a toolkit for reconstructing yourself as someone who can thrive in an environment that is changing at an exponential pace. Featuring numerous updates and enhancements, Science Fiction and Philosophy, 2nd Edition,  presents a collection of readings that utilize concepts developed from science fiction to explore a variety of classic and contemporary philosophical issues.

With such compelling and provocative novels as Red Planet Blues, FlashForward and The WWW Trilogy, Robert J.
Experimental psychologist Jim Marchuk has developed a flawless technique for identifying the previously undetected psychopaths lurking everywhere in society.

Jim is reunited with Kayla Huron, his forgotten girlfriend from his lost period and now a quantum physicist who has made a stunning discovery about the nature of human consciousness. For General Michael Hayden, playing to the edge means playing so close to the line that you get chalk dust on your cleats. As Director of CIA in the last three years of the Bush administration,  Hayden had to deal with the rendition, detention and interrogation program as bequeathed to him by his predecessors. For 10 years, then, General Michael Hayden was a participant in some of the most telling events in the annals of American national security. As he writes, “There is a story here that deserves to be told, without varnish and without spin. Train an em to do some job and copy it a million times: an army of workers is at your disposal. Some say we can’t know the future, especially following such a disruptive new technology, but Professor Robin Hanson sets out to prove them wrong. While human lives don’t change greatly in the em era, em lives are as different from ours as our lives are from those of our farmer and forager ancestors. Read about em mind speeds, body sizes, job training and career paths, energy use and cooling infrastructure, virtual reality, aging and retirement, death and immortality, security, wealth inequality, religion, teleportation, identity, cities, politics, law, war, status, friendship and love.
This book shows you just how strange your descendants may be, though ems are no stranger than we would appear to our ancestors. This book illuminates the astonishing science behind his decision, and the transformative power of the patternist thinking that carried him to it. Written with empathy, searing insight, and dark humour Frozen to Life is both cutting edge and bleeding heart: a postmodern experiment in falling in love with life while preparing for death, in ways we can change ourselves radically without losing our treasured humanity, and in coming to understand that neither life nor death is what we think it is. Everyone would benefit from seeing further into the future, whether buying stocks, crafting policy, launching a new product, or simply planning the week’s meals. In Superforecasting, Tetlock and coauthor Dan Gardner offer a masterwork on prediction, drawing on decades of research and the results of a massive, government-funded forecasting tournament. In this groundbreaking and accessible book, Tetlock and Gardner show us how we can learn from this elite group. The New York Times bestselling author of The Rational Optimist and Genome returns with a fascinating, brilliant argument for evolution that definitively dispels a dangerous, widespread myth: that we can command and control our world. The Evolution of Everything is about bottom-up order and its enemy, the top-down twitch—the endless fascination human beings have for design rather than evolution, for direction rather than emergence.
As compelling as it is controversial, authoritative as it is ambitious, Ridley’s stunning perspective will revolutionize the way we think about our world and how it works.
In this brilliant exploration of our cosmic environment, the renowned particle physicist and New York Times bestselling author of Warped Passages and Knocking on Heaven’s Door uses her research into dark matter to illuminate the startling connections between the furthest reaches of space and life here on Earth. Sixty-six million years ago, an object the size of a city descended from space to crash into Earth, creating a devastating cataclysm that killed off the dinosaurs, along with three-quarters of the other species on the planet. Working through the background and consequences of this proposal, Randall shares with us the latest findings—established and speculative—regarding the nature and role of dark matter and the origin of the Universe, our galaxy, our Solar System, and life, along with the process by which scientists explore new concepts.
Already internationally acclaimed for his elegant, lucid writing on the most challenging notions in modern physics, Sean Carroll is emerging as one of the greatest humanist thinkers of his generation as he brings his extraordinary intellect to bear not only on Higgs bosons and extra dimensions but now also on our deepest personal questions. In short chapters filled with intriguing historical anecdotes, personal asides, and rigorous exposition, readers learn the difference between how the world works at the quantum level, the cosmic level, and the human level–and then how each connects to the other. Carroll shows how an avalanche of discoveries in the past few hundred years has changed our world and what really matters to us. The Big Picture is an unprecedented scientific worldview, a tour de force that will sit on shelves alongside the works of Stephen Hawking, Carl Sagan, Daniel Dennett, and E.
Leading innovation expert Alec Ross explains what’s next for the world: the advances and stumbling blocks that will emerge in the next ten years, and how we can navigate them.
While Alec Ross was working as Senior Advisor for Innovation to the Secretary of State, he traveled to forty-one countries, exploring the latest advances coming out of every continent. In The Industries of the Future, Ross shows us what changes are coming in the next ten years, highlighting the best opportunities for progress and explaining why countries thrive or sputter. In each of these realms, Ross addresses the toughest questions: How will we adapt to the changing nature of work? Ross blends storytelling and economic analysis to give a vivid and informed perspective on how sweeping global trends are affecting the ways we live.
Professor Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum, has been at the centre of global affairs for over four decades. Visions of the Future is a collection of stories and essays including Nebula and Hugo award-winning works. But these literary works are more than just a reprisal of the classical elements of science fiction and futurism. This book, Visions of the Future, is not just a handy collection of pulp scifi adventures and articles. Bestselling author David Agus unveils the brave new world of medicine, one in which we can take control of our health like never before and doctors can fine-tune strategies and weapons to prevent illness.
In his first bestseller, The End of Illness, David Agus revealed how to add vibrant years to your life by knowing the real facts of health. In Rationality: From AI to Zombies, Eliezer Yudkowsky explains the science underlying human irrationality with a mix of fables, argumentative essays, and personal vignettes. A decision theorist and researcher at the Machine Intelligence Research Institute, Yudkowsky published earlier drafts of his writings to the websites Overcoming Bias and Less Wrong. From wearable sensors, to improved point-of-care diagnostics to artificial intelligence and robotics, there are a great and growing number of breakthroughs in biomedical technology which are set to fundamentally change the way that patients interact with their healthcare providers.

In an Internet society, according to Richard Susskind and Daniel Susskind, we will neither need nor want doctors, teachers, accountants, architects, the clergy, consultants, lawyers, and many others, to work as they did in the 20th century. They argue that our current professions are antiquated, opaque and no longer affordable, and that the expertise of their best is enjoyed only by a few. In an era when machines can out-perform human beings at most tasks, what are the prospects for employment, who should own and control online expertise, and what tasks should be reserved exclusively for people? The first wave saw AOL and other companies lay the foundation for consumers to connect to the Internet. With passion and clarity, Case explains the ways in which newly emerging technology companies (a growing number of which, he argues, will not be based in Silicon Valley) will have to rethink their relationships with customers, with competitors, and with governments; and offers advice for how entrepreneurs can make winning business decisions and strategies—and how all of us can make sense of this changing digital age. Most Americans have experienced temporary blackouts, and regard them as merely an inconvenience.
This is just one of many areas where exponential advances in technology signal both hope and fear, leading to public controversy.
It reveals the extent to which modern technological controversies grow out of distrust in public and private institutions. Indeed, as Gelernter explains, when we are at our most alert, when reasoning and creating new memories is our main mental business, the mind is a computer-like machine that keeps emotion on a short leash and attention on our surroundings.
You keep constructing and sticking with increasingly obsolete ideas about the world, even though many of them were rather fictional to begin with. Some very basic operating principles of your mind, mental models and language pull you towards fiction. In this book, the Center for Curriculum Redesign (CCR) describes a framework built to address this question, so that curriculum is redesigned for versatility and adaptability, to thrive in our volatile present and uncertain future. Sawyer has proven himself to be “a writer of boundless confidence and bold scientific extrapolation” (New York Times).
But while being cross-examined about his breakthrough in court, Jim is shocked to discover that he has lost his memories of six months of his life from twenty years previously—a dark time during which he himself committed heinous acts.
As a rising tide of violence and hate sweeps across the globe, the psychologist and the physicist combine forces in a race against time to see if they can do the impossible—change human nature—before the entire world descends into darkness. Otherwise, by playing back, you may protect yourself, but you will be less successful in protecting America. What else was set in motion during this period that formed the backdrop for the infamous Snowden revelations in 2013? He also had to ramp up the agency to support its role in the targeted killing program that began to dramatically increase in July 2008. My view is my view, and others will certainly have different perspectives, but this view deserves to be told to create as complete a history as possible of these turbulent times. When they can be made cheaply, within perhaps a century, ems will displace humans in most jobs.
Applying decades of expertise in physics, computer science, and economics, he uses standard theories to paint a detailed picture of a world dominated by ems. Ems make us question common assumptions of moral progress, because they reject many of the values we hold dear. From the initial confusion and isolation of his upbringing on the Scottish islands of Benbecula and Skye comes a curious inkling that collides with dominant religious dogmas and alters relationships: What am I?
The Good Judgment Project involves tens of thousands of ordinary people—including a Brooklyn filmmaker, a retired pipe installer, and a former ballroom dancer—who set out to forecast global events. Weaving together stories of forecasting successes (the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound) and failures (the Bay of Pigs) and interviews with a range of high-level decision makers, from David Petraeus to Robert Rubin, they show that good forecasting doesn’t require powerful computers or arcane methods.
Drawing on anecdotes from science, economics, history, politics and philosophy, Matt Ridley’s wide-ranging, highly opinionated opus demolishes conventional assumptions that major scientific and social imperatives are dictated by those on high, whether in government, business, academia, or morality.
The growth of technology, the sanitation-driven health revolution, the quadrupling of farm yields so that more land can be released for nature—these were largely emergent phenomena, as were the Internet, the mobile phone revolution, and the rise of Asia.

In Dark Matter and the Dinosaurs, Randall tells a breathtaking story that weaves together the cosmos’ history and our own, illuminating the deep relationships that are critical to our world and the astonishing beauty inherent in the most familiar things. Our lives are dwarfed like never before by the immensity of space and time, but they are redeemed by our capacity to comprehend it and give it meaning.
From startup hubs in Kenya to R&D labs in South Korea, Ross has seen what the future holds.
He examines the specific fields that will most shape our economic future, including robotics, cybersecurity, the commercialization of genomics, the next step for big data, and the coming impact of digital technology on money and markets. Incorporating the insights of leaders ranging from tech moguls to defense experts, The Industries of the Future takes the intimidating, complex topics that many of us know to be important and boils them down into clear, plainspoken language. He is convinced that the period of change we are living through is more significant, and the ramifications of the latest technological revolution more profound than any prior period of human history.
In this anthology, you’ll find stories and essays about artificial intelligence, androids, faster-than-light travel, and the extension of human life. In this book, he builds on that theme by showing why this is the luckiest time yet to be alive, giving you the keys to the new kingdom of wellness. In the old world, you followed general principles and doctors treated you based on broad, one-size-fits all solutions. Comparing the development of cities and villages, advanced economies and underdeveloped countries, Colvile explores the opportunities that this faster communication and operation could bring and how we must adapt ourselves to cope with the constant need to disrupt and fracture ourselves to survive.
Misdiagnosed at age 16, she endured multiple surgeries and countless hospitalizations over the course of a decade before deciding to take charge of her own healthcare and changing her life overnight.
I hope you are inspired by these stories and share them with anyone who may enjoy taking a brief trek into the future! I have achieved AMAZING meditative states that I would have never achieved without years of practice. Gelb, who has helped thousands of men and women learn to put more of their minds to work--and play--than they ever thought possible. In their place, they propose six new models for producing and distributing expertise in society. It took a decade for AOL to achieve mainstream success, and there were many near-death experiences and back-to-the-wall pivots. The second wave saw companies like Google and Facebook build on top of the Internet to create search and social networking capabilities, while apps like Snapchat and Instagram leverage the smartphone revolution. Some Americans have experienced more protracted local and regional blackouts, as in the aftermaths of Hurricanes Sandy and Katrina, and may be better able to imagine the consequences of a nationwide blackout lasting months or years, that plunges the entire United States into the dark. This book shows that many debates over new technologies are framed in the context of risks to moral values, human health, and environmental safety.
Using detailed case studies of coffee, the printing press, margarine, farm mechanization, electricity, mechanical refrigeration, recorded music, transgenic crops, and transgenic animals, it shows how new technologies emerge, take root, and create new institutional ecologies that favor their establishment in the marketplace. The way you interact with the world through mediating structures, ranging from electronic devices to words and mental models, creates an inertial force which leads you away from your goals. The topics she has written about most recently include the software approach to the mind, A.I. The framework focuses on knowledge (what to know and understand), skills (how to use that knowledge), character (how to behave and engage in the world), and meta-learning (how to reflect on and adapt by continuing to learn and grow). This was a time of great crisis at CIA, and some agency veterans have credited Hayden with actually saving the agency.
As Wharton professor Philip Tetlock showed in a landmark 2005 study, even experts’ predictions are only slightly better than chance. It involves gathering evidence from a variety of sources, thinking probabilistically, working in teams, keeping score, and being willing to admit error and change course. Just as skeins of geese form Vs in the sky without meaning to, and termites build mud cathedrals without architects, so brains take shape without brain-makers, learning can happen without teaching and morality changes without a plan.
Ridley demolishes the arguments for design and effectively makes the case for evolution in the universe, morality, genes, the economy, culture, technology, the mind, personality, population, education, history, government, God, money, and the future.
In Dark Matter and the Dinosaurs, Lisa Randall proposes it was a comet that was dislodged from its orbit as the Solar System passed through a disk of dark matter embedded in the Milky Way. How can the world’s rising nations hope to match Silicon Valley in creating their own innovation hotspots? This is an essential book for understanding how the world works—now and tomorrow—and a must-read for businesspeople in every sector, from every country. How will we respond to androids, extraterrestrial life, and humans that have seemingly unlimited lifespan? Disch, in The Dreams Our Stuff Is Made Of, writes, “It is my contention that some of the most remarkable features of the present historical moment have their roots in a way of thinking that we have learned from science fiction.” Science fiction and futurism can be both predictive and prescriptive. But even the ones that will get it wrong (and let’s be honest, most science fiction does) are still critical for us now. In this new golden age, you’ll be able to take full advantage of the latest scientific findings and leverage the power of technology to customize your care.
The Great Acceleration is a vertiginous read, incredibly fast itself, and incredibly smart.
Real rationality, of the sort studied by psychologists, social scientists, and mathematicians.
Collectively, these sequences of linked essays serve as a rich and lively introduction to the science—and the art—of human rationality.
Since then, Robin has become an entrepreneur, and has worked on more than 10 early stage startups, including three as one of the Founders: The Organ Preservation Alliance, Exponential Medicine at Singularity University, and Morfit. AOL became the top performing company of the 1990s, and at its peak more than half of all consumer Internet traffic in the United States ran through the service.
Now, Case argues, we’re entering the Third Wave: a period in which entrepreneurs will vastly transform major “real world” sectors like health, education, transportation, energy, and food—and in the process change the way we live our daily lives.
But it argues that behind these legitimate concerns often lie deeper, but unacknowledged, socioeconomic considerations. The book uses these lessons from history to contextualize contemporary debates surrounding technologies such as artificial intelligence, online learning, 3D printing, gene editing, robotics, drones, and renewable energy. By mastering these forces, you can evolve towards a mentally and physically greater being who inhabits a very different kind of reality.
This book is essential for teachers, department heads, heads of schools, administrators, policymakers, standard setters, curriculum and assessment developers, and other thought leaders and influencers, who seek to develop a thorough understanding of the needs and challenges we all face, and to help devise innovative solutions.
He himself won’t go that far, but he freely acknowledges that CIA helped turn the American security establishment into the most effective killing machine in the history of armed conflict.
However, an important and underreported conclusion of that study was that some experts do have real foresight, and Tetlock has spent the past decade trying to figure out why.
Superforecasting offers the first demonstrably effective way to improve our ability to predict the future—whether in business, finance, politics, international affairs, or daily life—and is destined to become a modern classic.
Are our emotions, our beliefs, and our hopes and dreams ultimately meaningless out there in the void? Crowdsourcing ideas, insights and wisdom from the World Economic Forum’s global network of business, government, civil society and youth leaders, this book looks deeply at the future that is unfolding today and how we might take collective responsibility to ensure it is a positive one for all of us.
If our relationship today with what is both new, unknown, and different is derived from fear, it’s not a far extrapolation to see that mentality carried forward. It’s difficult to overstate the significance of the practice of science fiction on shaping us today. Only those who know how to access and adapt to these breakthroughs—without being distracted by hyped ideas and bad medicine—will benefit. Once you learn how to achieve the correct mental state, you will absorb knowledge like a sponge.
After Case engineered AOL’s merger with Time Warner and he became Chairman of the combined business, Case oversaw the biggest media and communications empire in the world. But success in the Third Wave will require a different skill set, and Case outlines the path forward.
Technological tensions are often heightened by perceptions that the benefits of new technologies will accrue only to small sections of society while the risks will be more widely distributed. It ultimately makes the case for shifting greater responsibility to public leaders to work with scientists, engineers, and entrepreneurs to manage technological change, make associated institutional adjustments, and expand public engagement on scientific and technological matters. Self-awareness fades, reflection blinks out, and at last we are completely immersed in our own minds.

They’ve even beaten the collective judgment of intelligence analysts with access to classified information. Here are vivid tales about possible tomorrows, from the keen eye and colorful pen of David Brin, a modern master of speculative fiction. Hugh Howey’s “The Automated Ones” projects current fear-based bigotry into our relationship with AI life. Swift’s Electric Rifle, referencing the pulp science fiction classic that gave inspiration to the modern-day inventor. Through resilience and incredible fortune, the future may turn out far more marvelous than even the stories in this book could imagine. The most important aspect about explorations of the future is that they be written and be read. Imagine being able to get fit and lose weight without dieting, train your immune system to fight cancer, edit your DNA to avoid a certain fate, erase the risk of a heart attack, reverse aging, and know exactly which drugs to take to optimize health with zero side effects. Once you learn the special and unique methods to turn on your brain power, you will not only get results you never thought possible but also learning will actually become fun and exciting again. Similarly, innovations that threaten to alter cultural identities tend to generate intense social concern. The evidence of dramatic change is all around us and it’s happening at exponential speed.
Patterns of thought and belief that are thousands of years old still hold sway in shaping our reactions. Nicole Anderson’s “The Birth of the Dawn” shows a different relationship to human 2.0—one built on enthusiasm and wonder.
Beyond technological foresight, science fiction functions as a lab for thought experiments. Communications, transportation, industry, business and finance—all of the critical infrastructures that support modern civilization and the lives of the American people would be paralyzed by collapse of the electric power grid.
As such, societies that exhibit great economic and political inequities are likely to experience heightened technological controversies. What seemed to be obvious societal advances, in hindsight, were actually challenging battles. Threats to the electric power grid are posed by cyber attack, sabotage, a geomagnetic super-storm, and electromagnetic pulse (EMP) from the high-altitude detonation of a nuclear weapon. Blackout Wars warns that terrorists and rogue states are developing a revolutionary new military strategy that could exploit all of these threats in combination, including exploiting the opportunity of severe weather or a geo-storm, to collapse the national electric grid and all the critical infrastructures.
On the other hand, might fantastically potent new beings emerge out of ourselves, as revealed in “Chrysalis”? Featuring guest appearances by Gregory Benford, Jules Verne, and Galileo, this adventure takes you beyond the very singularity in “Stones of Significance,” pondering what could happen after humans are like gods. For the first time in history, the most dysfunctional societies, like North Korea that cannot even feed its own people, or even non-state actors like terrorists, could destroy the most successful societies on Earth—by means of a Blackout War.
Attacking the electric grid enables an adversary to strike at the technological and societal Achilles Heel of U.S. Blackout Wars likens this new Revolution in Military Affairs to Nazi Germany’s Blitzkrieg strategy, secretly developed and tested in low-profile experiments during the 1930s, sprung upon the Allies in 1939-1941 in a series of surprise attacks that nearly enabled the Third Reich to win World War II.
